“Sorrento Tour”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Americo came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. He provided an excellent service and his local knowledge of Sorrento and the surrounding areas added to the experience! His tour was fabulous! He also recommended various restaurants and local attractions, which we would never had known about otherwise, all of which were amazing!! Having witnessed Italian driving in Rome, it was great to have Americo who was a safe and reliable driver who spoke perfect English!!

Can't wait to go back to Sorrento and of course we will be calling on Americo for another wonderful tour!

“Driver and Guide for Amalfi Coast”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

I had the GOOD fortune of traveling to the south of Italy via a Celebrity Cruise late October into November 2012. Thanks to all the fine research of my sister-in-law we were BLESSED to have Americo as our personal driver and coordinator for tours of Pompeii, Sorrento, and Positano. Americo was incredibly kind-hearted, informative, professional, and a gem throughout our very long day together. I cannot begin to imagine trying to wander through such beautiful (and often REMOTE) areas of the Amalfi Coast without hiring a private driver and further coordinating a private walking guide for Pompeii. If you are spending the time and money to travel to Southern Italy, make sure you go the extra mile, travel through the small towns, dine ina non-tourist restaurant, and by all means hire Americo to be your driver and Famiglia for the day. We LOVED him and would not change one moment of our wonderful day together. In fact that day, BY FAR, was our highlight of the trip easily surpassing the very busy days in more touristy places of Venice and Rome. Cannot wait to return and AMERICO will be our ONLY driver!

“Rico is the best!!!”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

We just came back from touring the Amalfi coast and were based in Sorrento. I must say that having Rico for our driver was like hitting the lottery! He was awesome, and also spoke great English!! Not only was he a prompt and reliable and a fabulous , safe driver, but he was so knowledgeable about the Amalfi coast and would tell us stories about each town. You could tell that Sorrento and the Amalfi coast is his passion! He was very proud of his roots and would tell us fabulous stories about each region, and even mix in alittle Greek mythology with his stories. I told him he should be a teacher!
He even got us a little present when we left. You will not go wrong with hiring Rico!! We really got so attached to him and miss him already.

当初空港からソレントへのシャトルサービスとしてのみ利用することを考えていましたが、あまりに便利なのと親切で丁寧な運転に魅了され、Don Alfonsoへ行く際にも利用させて頂きました。夕食を終えたのが深夜に近かったにも関わらず、嫌な顔一つせず、ニコニコと待っていたのが印象に残ります。4人以上で乗車されるのでしたらかなりお得な移動手段となります。またシャトルサービスの相場があるそうで、良心的なお値段でした。今回はラベッロへ訪れたとき霧で残念な結果となったのでまたソレントへ行った際は是非利用したいと思っています。

We were lucky enough to be picked up at Naples airport by Americo Car Service during Easter holidays in 2013. We strongly recommend to hire Americo Car Service especially more than 4 people and when sightseeing through Amalfi Coast. As I could read other comments, Americo is very safe but also professional driver. For example, he always try to propose several different ideas when we had free time for sightseeing. His English is also very fluent and could be an excellent interprete as well as tour guide. Overall we couldn't be happier if we didn't meet Americo. Grazie!!!

“Such an unexpected surprise... Americo made our Sorrento trip!!”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We called for a taxi and really lucked out when Americo picked us up! We wanted to pick up a few last minute things before we caught the train to Rome and Americo went WAY above and beyond our request!

We had no idea he was going to take so much time out of his day to show us around Sorrento, take us to the authentic shops and provide us with so much useful information! He took us to the original Limoncello shop (Azienda Agricola I Giardini Di Cataldo), where is was first sold so we could bring some home. Then we asked about olive oil and he drove us to the home of an award winning olive oil maker (Frantoio Pontecorvo) where we got to meet the maker, taste the oil, and buy fresh olive oil! It was such a great experience and we are so appreciative Americo treated us to that experience! He was a wealth of knowledge and made our ride to the train station so enjoyable! We will be recommending him to anyone we know visiting the Almalfi Coast area! Thanks Americo!!!
